News: A procedural platformer RPG hybrid with roguelike elements is heading to consoles and the PS Vita in a couple weeks.



”Vertical

Vertical Drop Heroes HD is launching on the Xbox One, PS4 and PS Vita this month. It will release on the PS4 and PS Vita on February 14 (North America) and February 15 (EU). It will be available for $6.99/€6.99 and will be a cross buy title. It will release on Xbox One beginning February 17 and that price will be $7.99/€7.99, although if you pre-order it you will get 10% off.

Vertical Drop Heroes is a procedural platformer RPG hybrid with roguelike elements, where your hero adventures through randomly generated stages. Armed with a variety of skills and traits, you must use your cunning and reflexes to survive the dangers of each stage, until you face the final boss and uncover the truth behind the game.

Some of the key features include:

  • Randomly generated stages, enemies and bosses, resulting in a very replayable game

  • Artwork, coding and animation done by one person, Nerdook, in his unique style

  • Split screen, local co-op

  • Destructible terrain and multiple uses for each skill gives you plenty of options to approach the different situations generated

  • Tons of skills, abilities, traits and powers that you can unlock in the game, creating a different hero each time

  • Unique combat system where proper planning is more important than quick reflexes

  • Persistent upgrades allow you to carry forward progress between games, with a choice between increasingly expensive persistent upgrades or generally cheaper temporary upgrades

  • Every enemy and boss has been designed to provide challenge and variety


  • This is a HD remake for Vertical Drop Heroes, the original webgame with over 2 million plays created by Nerdook -- a one-man developer with a portfolio of games that has accumulated more than 50 million plays worldwide. Bigger and better in every way, Vertical Drop Heroes HD revamps the entire game into an epic, randomly generated platformer RPG.

    Do you plan on picking it up when it launches a little later this month? Tell us what you think below.
